Harry Maguire claims Edinson Cavani best he played against

Manchester United star Harry Maguire appeared to be in awe of Edinson Cavani following his match-winning performance vs Southampton.

The former PSG man came on at the break to brilliantly lead his side to a sensational comeback win away from home.

United were 2-0 down at half-time but came out in the second half with all guns blazing to dramatically secure a 3-2 win thanks to Cavani’s brace and an assist.

Maguire and his teammates couldn’t keep a clean-sheet so it was thanks to the experienced Uruguayan that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co walked away with a win.

The English centre-back has trained alongside his fair share of quality attackers but it’s Cavani who has impressed him the most.

Perhaps the most notable striker Maguire has trained with is his former colleague Jamie Vardy who is known for being notoriously relentless.

The pacy forward is always looking to make runs in behind and so his movement is dangerous in its own right.

Cavani is the one who gets the praise, however, and it might have to do with how he is better timed at what he does than perhaps Vardy is.

Against Southampton, he showed everyone just how well he sniffs out where the best place is to be and from those positions, he managed to grab a quickfire brace.

United have had some world class goalkeepers over the years and some entertaining ones too. Take our quiz below to find out how much you know about United’s number 1’s, past and present.
